Figure Drawing Intensive

Immerse yourself in drawing in an afternoon or full day of drawing with a dynamic and popular teacher who will bring out your best. Using any media, draw from a live model and see the subject and your own work in new ways and with new inspiration.

Choose one Sunday in each month, or more, from November through April each year. Then, in July, go super-intense and draw for a full day or two days in a row.

Beginners and seasoned artists alike have enjoyed these intensive workshops.
